Asked for fish and chips (former Papa Jim's fish and chips for lunch were good tasting and used local battered fish) but received frozen fish sticks. Not very tasty at all. Have eaten here a few times since the management has changed hands and did not like the food.

However it seems that over the past year, the quality has declined; the dough is tough to chew, the ingredients are not fresh/flavorful, and the bottom is always burnt.

The meals at Papa Jim's were tasteful, large portions and moderately priced. The pizzas were excellent.

I live and work in Yellowknife. I like going to Papa Jims particularly for the wings. They are by far the best in town. However, it is by far the worst service ever. I do not mean in terms of long waits or anything like that. We generally go there in the evening and 90% of the time we get... More
